Awesome as ever!!! Peter Lerangis has yet another hit with his third installment of the Seven Wonders series, The Tomb of Shadows. And I am not just saying that because he is the one that got me started doing this blog. He would want nothing more than for me to be totally honest about his book, right?
The Tomb of Shadows has us back with Jack the tailor, Cass the sailor, Aly the tinker, (Marco the soldier defected to the Massa), joining up with Jack’s dad to hunt for more loculi in hopes of seeing their fifteenth birthdays before the dreaded affects of the G7W gene kills them, like all the other selects before them. This time they not only have to fight the ever present pesky Massa, but also the zombies of the Great Mausoleum at Halicarnassus in Turkey. In this fast paced book you see the Karai Institute home base get attacked when it should have never been found, a plane crash, puzzles solved, and was the big eye from the last book really Jack’s mom back from the grave, and who of our hero’s crew goes to the grave in this book? Some questions get answered, and more questions asked.
This is an awesome book it keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. It is a definite can’t put it down, I read past my bedtime kind of book. Oh and if you haven’t started the series it is not too late, you won’t regret it. It is so fun and fast paced with action even your reluctant readers will find it a great read.
